How to Choose a College

by Mawi on January 9, 2013

The #1 most emailed article on NYtimes.com last week was titled “How to Choose a College.”

The article covers a lot of interesting factors such as the brand power of a college.

My view is pretty simple. When choosing a college, always ask for three numbers:

1) What will be my total cost of attendances?

2) What is the average starting salary of students at your college? Get it by major if you can.

3) What is the six-year graduation rate at your college?

If a college cannot give you these three numbers, run for the hills.  College is simply too expensive a decision to be made on the basis of things such as fit, or how you feel when you visit.
